How To Use A Crappie Light

This light is designed in a waterproof casing to prevent it from being damaged while it is submerged. The casing is made heavy enough to stay underneath the water exactly where you put it. It will not float back up to the top of the water. All you need to do is lower the lantern over the side of the boat and let it go under the water a couple of feet. The light will illuminate the area around the lantern and draw in the bait fish followed by the crappie.
Now you are ready for an eventful and fun night of reeling in the crappie fish.

Even on nights that the moon is full and lighting up the top of the water using a lantern can still help to improve the amount of success that you have. It will draw the fish closer to your location instead of them being scattered out. This way, you don’t have to spend time searching for the crappie; you just have to wait for them to come to you.

Anytime that you go night fishing you do need to exercise caution. Night fishing can be a lot more dangerous than fishing during the day. You should never go out on a lake or river at night that you don’t know anything about. Go out during the day and learn the area first so you will know what to expect when you go back out. It is always a good idea to have at least one partner with you just in case you were to run into trouble. You don’t want to be out on the water in the middle of the night alone. Safety should always be your first concern so every crappie fishing trip can be a fun and exciting one.
